The Economy gauge still is in the red at Idle?
Keep looking for a vacuum leak. I'm guessing that your climate control is acting weird too (air only blows from defrost vents).

Just for grins....pull off one of the hoses on the large tube that goes to the brake booster - see if you are getting vacuum there (if you have a vacuum gauge to attach, that would be even better - post the readings here).
